The Food Channel presents its "Top Ten Dessert Trends for 2011" sponsored by MARS Foodservices. By partnering with CultureWaves, the International Food Futurists, and Mintel International, The Food Channel has been able to identify the most significant food trends in dessert for 2011, from the evolution of the ever popular cupcake to the new raw food movement.
“When we took a look at how people are consuming dessert, one thing became clear: Our tastes are evolving and becoming more educated,” says Kay Logsdon, editor of The Food Channel. “We see society trending toward a more casual—and less stuffy—lifestyle. One on hand, we demand less processed foods and cleaner labels, but we still allow ourselves to indulge in sweet little rewards that get us through the day.”
